Fila Golf offers new, waterproof men's and women's jackets for 2014
Series: Golf Buzz

New for 2014, Fila Golf has introduced its Auckland and Rockingham Waterproof Performance Jackets.
The men's Auckland jacket ($110) features mesh lamination and a detachable hood, a mockneck with fleece lining, contrasting color collar, as well as shoulder, side seam and under sleeve panels for easy flexibility that won't interfere with your swing.
Other features include a technical zipper front, self-adjustable sleeve closure with Velcro, two hip pockets with technical zippers, security pocket, shock cord and drawstring with plastic toggles, FILA linear logo embroidered tonal on right back shoulder and extended sport hem.
The Auckland comes in four colors: Silver / Atomic Orange; Black / Viva Red; Black / Silver; and Viva Red / Silver.
It's a jacket that's not only perfect for the golf course, but also for off the course.
Put to the test on a recent trip to the range on a chilly day, the Auckland jacket provided all the warmth you'd need without restricting your swing. The sport hem ensures that the jacket remains close to your body, staying away from your hands at address.
For women, the Rockingham jacket ($110) includes all the same features and waterproof performance of the men's Auckland and is also available in four colors: Silver / Atomic Orange; Black / Viva Red; Black / Silver; and Viva Red / Silver.
